Keeping up with pen palling was a little difficult while not being at home but not impossible. Here are just a few of the things I received and acquired while away...
|Post from one of my British pen pals...|
|These are cards designed by the lovely Hannah Yates in Bridport, Dorset.|
Her designs also feature on clothing through her small business called
Quirky Clothing Company, for more info: http://www.hannahyates.com
|Just part of the washi/paper tape collection I acquired while I was in the UK &|
The Netherlands. Thanks to Paperchase, The Range, Dragon Chant, HEMA,
and Wibra for tempting me beyond belief!
|Three tapes for £3 at Paperchase, how could I not?|
|Had to buy a tin at Goulds in Dorchester just to house|
my increasingly large collection. Pretty, right?
|New tapes from Clinton's Cards, purchased in Dorchester. They are a new line|
called My Journal and there were three different tapes. I got the first to there
and caved and bought the third one at the Clinton's in Sutton Coldfield.
|Last set of tapes I bought at Paperchase in Sutton before leaving the UK to|
come home for a long while...sigh! From the Pushy Cats collection.
|Upon returning home and scouring my collection I came|
across this card that reminded me of the beach huts in
Lyme Regis! Go figure! I suddenly found I had many things
in my collection at home reminiscent of the UK!
|A visit to the new Hobby Lobby within walking distance of|
home revealed MANY new possibilities where stickers are
concerned...this is just ONE aisle of nothing but stickers!
